We know that Gwyneth’s really stoked to be singing in her new country-fried movie “Country Strong,” but yeah, no. Their combined level of self-righteous GOOP-iness is frighteningly high, and we can’t think of anywhere we’d rather NOT be than a Gwynnie/Coldplay concert.

It should come as no surprise that Grace Jones and Pee-wee Herman used to hang out. After all, they’re two of the strangest characters of the ’80s, so sure. Here, an uncharacteristically ebullient Grace sings “Little Drummer Boy” to Pee-wee, Chairy, Terry and the rest of the “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” gang. [YouTube
